Harry Potter actor Tom Felton delights fans at Irish golf club

Harry Potter actor Tom Felton was a surprise visitor to County Louth Golf Club over the weekend.

The actor, best known for playing Draco Malfoy in the iconic film series, was pictured before hitting the links at the Baltray course.

Felton is a keen golfer and was actually involved in a medical incident when he appeared to collapse while playing in a celebrity golf match prior to the 2021 Ryder Cup.

The 35-year-old subsequently played down the incident and said it was a consequence of jetlag and excitement.

"I felt fine immediately afterwards. But yeah, your body is going to need a little more attention," he said.

"I’m no good to anyone unless I’m good to myself. And I hate to say it, but I’m finally realising that."

It is perhaps not surprising that Felton would want to play golf at Baltray, which is widely regarded as one of the finest courses in Ireland.

And maybe the golf nut was tipped off about the course by his old Harry Potter co-star Evanna Lynch who grew up in the neighbouring village of Termonfeckin.
